Summary Information:
The Tokuremoar Reserve Management Plan was a joint initiative of the Ngarrindjeri Heritage Committee, Alexandrina Council and the Department of Environment, Heritage and Aboriginal Affairs. The Ngarrindjeri Heritage Committee was supported by the Aboriginal Legal Rights Movement, Native Title Unit, and Papta Warra Yunti ATSIC Regional Council. Of concern was the increasing desecration of Indigenous burial and ceremonial grounds, dune and wetland systems in the reserve and the need to protect and preserve the area to avoid increasing negative environmental impacts.
Detailed Information:
The Tokuremoar Reserve is within the Alexandrina Council area, located in the southern portion of the Fleurieu Pensinsula. The area was home country to the Watiindjeri clan of the Ramindjeri people. It is of special cultural significance to the Ramindjeri/Ngarrindjeri people and contains significant archaeological and anthropological sites including ceremonial and burial grounds. Natural Heritage Trust funding was secured to develop and assist in the implementation of the management plan. In particular the plan provides for continuing consultation with the Ngarrindjeri Heritage Committee, ongoing protection of cultural and ecologically significant areas and nature based tourism experiences, such as an interpretive walking trail through the reserve, and an education facility ('Examples of Working Together in South Australia', November 2000).
